The Big Story of Scripture

Equipping you to understand how all the parts of the Bible fit together. From Genesis to Revelation, gain perspective of God’s gracious and loving plan to call us into His family.
The Art of Applying Scripture
Sundays, Jan. 20 - Mar. 17 | 9:00 AM | Chapel
It is very common for Christians to have learned many truths from the Bible, but to have applied only a small percentage of them in their lives. This means that many of us live with a “gap” between our Biblical knowledge and our actual behavior. The Lord wants to change that! This 9-week class is designed to help us become more skilled and engaged in leveraging Bible information into personal transformation. We will study the book of Philippians together, with an emphasis on applying what we learn. For more information, contact Roberta Walker or 408-240-7933.

“Intentional Parenting: 10 Ways to Be an Exceptional Parent in a Quick Fix World”
Sundays, Jan. 20 - Mar. 31 | 9:00 AM | Sequoia Room
No matter how good their intentions, all parents at times resort to quick-fix parenting: things we do to stop a kid's negative or annoying behavior. Quick-fix parenting may temporarily ease a parent's stress level, but it does little to positively impact a child's future. Quick-fix parenting is a terrible long-term strategy for parenting. Intentional parenting is the opposite of quick-fix parenting. Intentional parenting is a way to raise children to become healthy, independent young adults. It's based on solid principles which, applied over time, actually result in less-stressed parents and happier, better- adjusted, and more successful kids. Intentional parenting means you've got more than good intentions; you've got a plan. (And it's always better to have a plan for dealing with the stuff that inevitably crops up between parents and their kids than it is to wing it.) For more information, contact Pastor Johnson or 408-240-7920.
